VirginiaFilter: Where in Virginia can I find a midnight Easter vigil service... in Spanish?

I've got some out-of-town guests (from waaay out of town) and I'd like to take them to an Easter vigil mass this weekend, in their native language. We don't mind driving, so pretty much anywhere in the VA/DC area (or even further afield) would be fine. Catholic would be best, but Spanish-language trumps sect.

It looks like St. Martin of Tours Church in Gaithersburg has a Spanish language Easter Vigil mass at 10PM Saturday night.

Also St. Charles Borromeo in Arlington, VA.

There are quite a few churches in the NoVa area which are bilingual. Google is your friend.

Christ the Redeemer in Sterling has a bilingual Easter Vigil mass at 8:00pm on Saturday night; Good Shepherd in Alexandria has one at 7:30pm. Easter Vigil is a long service with lots of readings (and that's when RCIA catuchumens are baptized, confirmed, and receive First Communion) and usually starts just after sundown. The bilingual churches in the Diocese of Arlington seem to do the one bilingual service; the church in Gaithersburg mentioned above is in the Archdiocese of Washington, and maybe a separate Spanish Vigil is more common there.
